Planning commission meeting moved to Jan. 3
Because of last Wednesday's snow storm the Leavenworth County Planning Commission meeting was rescheduled until Jan. 3.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the courthouse in Leavenworth.
On the agenda is a request for a special use permit from Rural Water District No. 9 for a booster pump building at 22000 235th St., just east of Tonganoxie. The Tonganoxie City Council opposes that request because the council believes the city soon will provide water to residents of the water district. If the water district were annexed into the city, Tonganoxie would have to pay for improvements in the district, such as the booster pump building. The water district also is seeking a special use permit for below-ground water storage and a high service pump building at 20603 Parallel Rd.
The planning commission also will consider requests for:
A special use permit for truck hauling business at 22500 McIntyre Rd.
A special use permit for an in-house beauty shop at 11499 230th St.
Preliminary and final plats for Walnut Hills Subdivision, 7 lots, South Glenn Subdivision, 10 lots, E-S-M Subdivision, three lots, Lo-Mar Estates, 13 lots, and Midland Hills Subdivision, three lots.
A request to rezone land on the south side of U.S. Highway 24-40 to be used for single-family housing has been moved to the Jan. 10 meeting, according to John Zoellner, the county's planning director. Principals involved in the rezoning request are not able to attend the Jan. 3 meeting.
Tonganoxie residents Burdel and Cynthia Welsh originally had hoped to develop a recreational vehicle park on the land, at 17211 State Ave. The planning commission rejected that proposal, after hearing concerns from area residents.
Now, Welsh and two Lawrence residents hope to develop the 50 acres into a subdivision with about 130 homes. The site is about 1.5 miles west of Basehor.
